Practice Safe Canning!

72As pretty much everyone knows, this weekend is the second canning weekend for THON. We at Onward State encourage everyone to practice safe canning techniques, ensuring a safe and enjoyable weekend for everyone. With the help of the THON Overall Committee, we’ve compiled  list of things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure you have your PSU ID on you at all times
  • Don’t run into the streets and stay off of medians
  • Don’t stop traffic to receive donations
  • Wear bright and visible clothing (it’s supposed to snow this weekend, so this one is especially important)
  • Be sure to ask permission from property owners and comply with all local and state regulations regarding solicitation
  • No canning after dark

Remember that this is For the Kids, so stay safe.

If you have any questions, you can read the rulebook (warning – pdf link) or contact Rules and Regulations Overall Lauren Kay at [email protected].

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
